How to convert gigawatts to milliwatts (GW to mW)
The formula for converting gigawatts to milliwatts is: mW = GW × 1000000000000. To calculate the gigawatt value in milliwatts first substitute the gigawatt value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 gigawatt in milliwatts we follow these steps:
mW = GW × 1000000000000
mW = 1 × 1000000000000
mW = 1000000000000
In other words, 1 gigawatt is equal to 1000000000000 milliwatts.
Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 7 gigawatts to milliwatts is:
- Understand the conversion formula: mW = GW × 1000000000000
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 7 for GW so the formula becomes: mW = 7 × 1000000000000
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 7 × 1000000000000 = 7e+12 mW
In summary, 7 gigawatts is equal to 7e+12 milliwatts.
Converting milliwatts to gigawatts
In order to convert the other way around i.e. milliwatts to gigawatts, you would use the following formula: GW = mW × 0.000000000001. To convert milliwatts to gigawatts first substitute the milliwatt value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 milliwatt in gigawatts we follow these steps:
GW = mW × 0.000000000001
GW = 1 × 0.000000000001
GW = 0.000000000001
Or in other words, 1 milliwatt is equal to 0.000000000001 gigawatts.
